Genes outside the MHC create a general susceptibility to autoimmunity in non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice. In this study, we describe marked differences in dendritic cell generation, in vitro, caused by non-MHC NOD genes. Bone marrow cells from NOD.H-2k mice cultured in vitro with GM-CSF and IL-4 generated a reduced yield of dendritic cells when compared to bone marrow cells from B10.H-2k mice. This was due to failure to pass through successive rounds of cell division and elevated levels of...[Show more]
